The Independent is a very compact and innovative Ultrasonic and Laser Obstacle Detector for visually impaired people to improve their navigation and safety in everyday environments. The device features a minimalist design and incorporates both ultrasonic and laser sensors that enable it to detect obstacles in the upper body and head area, areas often overlooked by traditional aids.

Weighing only 16 grams and with dimensions that make it incredibly portable (42mm x 25mm x 15mm or 21mm), the Independent can be discreetly attached to clothing using its clip, providing a non-intrusive and flexible way to wear the device. This feature alone sets it apart and underscores its convenience and ease of use. The option of attaching it directly to a walking stick further enhances its versatility, allowing users to adapt the device to their personal needs and preferences.

The technical performance of the Independent is remarkable. It is powered by a 3.7V 160mAh lithium polymer battery, which ensures a reliable power supply. The device’s ultrasonic and laser sensors cover measurement angles of 80° and 27°, respectively, providing a wide detection range. Its operating times are impressive, with up to 40 hours of ultrasonic detection and up to 10 hours of laser use, culminating in a combined operating time of up to 8 hours when both functions are used.
